Have your say

A MAN from Stowmarket has denied carrying out an assault in the town’s cemetery.

Luke Myers, of Wingap Lane, pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault causing actual bodily harm and a second offence of assault with intent to commit a sexual offence, when he appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Friday, July 8.

Myers was told by Judge David Goodin that his three-day trial will begin on August 16.

The 20-year-old was remanded in custody until his next court appearance.

The offence is alleged to have happened in the cemetery on April 30. Police were contacted just after 6am after a member of public reported that a woman had been attacked.
